New Delhi: Aamir Khan is gearing up for the release of much-awaited Laal Singh Chaddha, which will finally release in theatres after multiple delays. The 3 Idiots star recently spoke about how the delay in post-production of was a blessing in disguise, which would have otherwise clashed with the blockbuster movie KGF: Chapter 2.

For the unversed, Laal Singh Chaddha was earlier slated to be released alongside KGF: Chapter 2 on April 14 this year.

“I remember when KGF 2 was about to release, there was a lot of excitement among the Hindi audience, amongst my own friends. Laal Singh Chaddha was supposed to release on that day. But fortunately for us, Red Chillies was taking a little time on the VFX so we got saved! Otherwise, we would have come with KGF 2,” Khan told reporters.

KGF: Chapter 2 set the box office on fire with an opening of more than Rs 53 crore, emerging as one of the biggest hits of Indian cinema in 2022. The Prashanth Neel directorial ended its lifetime domestic run at Rs 434 crore.

At the event, Khan was joined by Chiranjeevi, who is presenting the Telugu version of Laal Singh Chaddha and Naga Chaitanya, who stars in the film in a key role. From Pushpa: The Rise, S S Rajamouli’s RRR to KGF: Chapter 2, Khan said it was heartening to see the pan-India success of south films.

KGF 2 is a Kannada film, there is Pushpa, Baahubali, RRR (all Telugu)… All these films have come from the south of India and have won the hearts of audiences across the country… It is wonderful to see that cinema coming out of one state of India can successfully give joy and entertainment to the whole country. That’s really a celebration for us when that happens,” he added.

Directed by Advait Chandan and also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Laal Singh Chaddha is scheduled to be released on August 11. The film will have a box office clash with Raksha Bandhan, headlined by Akshay Kumar.
